Greetings! We are going to schedule our 500 point League to begin next Saturday, June 20th. If you would like to participate, please notify us by confirming that you can commit to the league (probably around 5-6 weeks) in this thread.
This is intended to be a fun, semi-competitive league. We want to encourage any players new to the hobby or "out of the loop," but we encourage you to have a decent understanding of your army list's attributes and special rules.
We will be using a modified FoC for this league. Maximum of 500 points
1 HQ 0-1 Elite 1-3 Troops 0-1 Fast Attack 0-1 Heavy Support 0-1 Optional Elite, Troop, Fast Attack, or Heavy Support
Troops will have Objective Secured, and you will be allowed to re-roll your warlord trait from your codex or the WH40K rulebook.
No models may have more than 2 wounds with the exception of HQ choices, troop choices, and swarms. No armor save better than 3, nor invulnerable save better than 4. Your HQ may not be a vehicle (it cannot have Hull Points). No vehicles in your army can have an AV value greater than 12 on any facing. This only counts a vehicles base armor. Do not count wargear or special rules which add to the armor value. We will be using a small 4' x 4' table for these games, and we encourage players to try to scatter reasonable terrain for these games. No flyers. No Forge World rules. We will be using Eternal War Missions (except The Scouring, so if you get that agree btw opponents or re-roll). Please do not use proxies- we will require wysiwyg GW/FW models. You may use an alternate FoC if your codex does not support the modified FoC (for skitarii, harlequins, inquisition, etc.). You will be limited to a single codex. No formations aside from the modified FoC or the previous exception will be allowed.
You will be asked to post your list in this thread, and you will be bound to it. If you lose a game, you will be allowed to fully revise your list (from the same codex). Please bring a copy of your army list, a rulebook, dice, and templates.
We will kick off officially Saturday morning, so we will have pairings ready for our first games.
Looking forward to some fun games, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Addendum: (6/15/15) we would like to use random terrain placement for this league. This will involve alternating terrain placement and a way to randomly scatter it, most likely using the scatter dice. We strongly discourage the implementation of terrain "sculpting", as we do not think that manipulating terrain placement is in the best interest of the league.

I may as well step up first. I've decided to declare my allegiance to the Adeptus Mechanicus; specifically, the Skitarii. I've even got a list put together.
Troops Skitarii Vanguard 10, 200pts -The Alpha is my Warlord -3 Plasma Calivers, Omnispex
Skitarii Rangers 9, 109pts
Heavy Support Onager Dunecrawler Squadron, 190pts -Onager with Mindscanner Probe -Onager
Now, since it's only Tuesday, I may edit my list a bit before Saturday, but this should be the gist of it. If anyone wants to try any practise games to see how their army performs, I'll be happy to play if I have time.
I play everything, and anything I haven't played, I am willing to try.
Magic, D&D, X-Wing, & 40k, and that's only the beginning.
I realized I may very well may want to tweak my list.
I took an ammo runt, but my Painboy doesn't have a ranged weapon...
Lets make midnight~ the deadline for tweaking our lists. If you do just edit your original post and send me a message and I will update it in my official file (i am using battlescribe to keep track of them all).
